21 LETTERS OF AMBROSE BIERCE. Ambrose Bierce, , Samuel Loveman H. P. Lovecraft. 21 LETTERS OF AMBROSE BIERCE.
West Warwick, RI: Necronomicon Press, (1991). First edition thus. Reprint of the 1922 limited edition, adding an introduction by Donald R. Burleson. Bierce's letters to Loveman--who he seemed to have taken under his wing--from October, 1908, until a few months before Bierce disappeared in Mexico in December, 1913, with the last one reading, "Dear Mr. Loveman, This is only to say good-bye. I am going away to South America in a few weeks, and have not the faintest notion when I shall return. May you prosper and be happy. Sincerely, Ambrose Bierce. September 10, 1913") Burleson's introduction is an incongrous one, focusing entirely on Bierce's influence on H. P. Lovecraft. Loveman later became friends with Lovecraft; Bierce's work influenced Lovecraft's; and Lovecraft wrote literary criticism on Bierce. Still, it seems a tenuous link for the subject of 4-pages of introduction out of a total of 16 pages of text. Yellow, stapled paperwraps printed in black. Very good with covers a little rumpled and fading to edges.
